Remembering a Dallas Fashion Legend

Today, fashion legend, Kim Dawson, passed away at the age of 85 from complications associated with Alzheimer's.

Most of you (our students and grads) know about Kim Dawson in your work with The Kim Dawson Agency - one of the most elite talent agencies in Dallas, representing the most talented stylists and the finest print and runway models, as well as voice and acting talent.

Every year, the Kim Dawson Model Search continues to be an incredibly popular event and has launched the careers of young women like Maybelline face Erin Wasson and Abercrombie & Fitch model Chaise Mooty. The Art Institute of Dallas is even connected to the Search, as our own Larry Travis has been official photographer for the event.

After her diagnosis with Alzheimer's, Ms. Dawson became a spokesperson, volunteering her time in the fight to find a cure for the disease with which she was afflicted.
Read the full story as reported in the Dallas Morning News

So, what is your call to action as we say goodbye to a Dallas fashion icon? Volunteer your time for a meaningful charity. Kim Dawson set the example - and I'm pretty sure she'd be happy that she inspired you to give back to your community.

A Must-See Show...

Yasmina Johnston, a graduate of The Art Institute of Dallas (and a visuals specialist at Saks Fifth Avenue), and Fashion Design student Katie Newell were selected to be featured designers at the upcoming "Art After Dark" fashion show at The Aveda Institute. Yasmina's fashion-forward designs are luxurious, beautiful, and unexpected. Katie designed the first-ever line of completely "green" Eco-friendly garments for a fashion show at ANY of The Art Institute campuses!

Please plan to attend the show. The Aveda Institute is located just steps from our campus - across from "Off 5th."
